Indiana native, B.J. Hollars, now a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin in Eau Claire, has a deep interest in the Americna civil rights movement and flair for creative nonfiction that have converged in a new book called "The Road South: Personal Stories of the Freedom Riders."
Hollars was in Fort Wayne this week for an author visit at the downtown Public Library. WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with him to discuss how his interest in this part of American history developed, and where the journey has led.
